It is stated in the release notes and is expected behaviour.

Yes, newer version of alien dalvik needs to reinstall all the apk's in the background for 1st boot. We forgot to mention that in release notes... notes will be updated.

Do I need manualy reinstall all apks?

No, it's automatically done by the system, just give it a few minutes.

I didn't have any network connection, the first time I booted in Are my apps already reinstalled? Do I have to manually do it? Thanks

@magullo, like already answered, its done automatically and you don't need network or any manual steps.

FWIW, the Android apps (all 4 of them) took a very long time to update, so I checked the aliendalvik service:

[root@Jolla nemo]# systemctl status aliendalvik.service
aliendalvik.service - Myriad Alien Dalvik
      Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/aliendalvik.service; static)
      Active: inactive (dead)
      CGroup: name=systemd:/system/aliendalvik.service

So I restarted it:

[root@Jolla nemo]# systemctl start aliendalvik.service

and after that the four Android apps updated in seconds. I found the solution in coments here: https://together.jolla.com/question/38508/release-notes-software-version-10516-paarlampi/

Apparently if you have big applications like games, it may take a while.

Had a case 30 apps with 4 angry bird games with them, were updating for ~2 hours. So please be patient

Have a little another question, how I can check via CLI if all my 16 app updated ? After reboot I have got message about update of android apps and it said it can rearrange order of apps. I pressed OK, but I didn't saw any spinning animation on the icons of android apps, all icons on the same places and I don't now if it updated or not. Any command to check if this update done ? Thanks

P.S. Checked dates via File browser in /data/app, looks like all app have got new date (today), probably it means all apps updated...

My android apps have been reinstalling for 24 hours. 17 apps, with Real racers 3, the only large one.

Same question as schturman here, is there anyway to check if the Androids apps have been updated?

I am surprised that sms support does not work in one of my app (Waze).
